It's been a long day. I went to Zumba this morning and got my workout on. I do aqua aerobics, and the couch 2 5k running program each week and Zumba by far makes me the most sore and tired and sweaty. Yay for the calorie burn!

After Zumba I ran home, got my shower, put some laundry away and got dinner ready for the crockpot. Then I grabbed the kids and headed to a birthday party for one of ant's friends. After the party I ran home to pick up Jeff and went to stir my pasta sauce in the crockpot and apparently, I didn't plug the crockpot in. So I plugged it in, got everyone in the car and headed out to the middle of nowhere to visit my grandpa. He's in his 80's and lonely so we try and visit him when we can. At 4:30 or so I was starving and it occurred to me that with the time change my body thought it was 5:30. So we stopped at some funky fast food Chinese place and got dinner. I was pleasantly surprised with how it turned out. Dinner for 4 at $16 and none of it made me sick. I've been trying to avoid eating out and anything off of my food plan. I completely avoided all the yummy food at the birthday party so I was frustrated to have to eat out. I did good, I just had 1/2 cup or so of whatever chicken and veggies dish they had that wasn't breaded and fried.

I used to spend so much time thinking about food and eating. Now it's more focusing on the healthy foods and avoiding the hypoglycemia.

Now we're headed back home and the kids will get a bath, I'll tidy up the house and do the dishes. If I'm lucky I'll have time to sit and watch a show and fold some laundry before I fall asleep. And hopefully my crockpot spaghetti sauce will be finished by bed time.
